  • YOU CAME TO BE A GUEST
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:11.100
  • AT WOMEN OF FAITH , I THINK
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:12.160
  • PROBABLY IN OUR LAST YEAR.
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:14.040
  • WHEN I SAW YOU, I THOUGHT
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:15.200
  • YOU WERE JUST THIS YOUNG,
  • 00:02:15.200 --> 00:02:17.030
  • VERY PRETTY, BEAUTIFULLY
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:19.000
  • DRESSED GIRL.
  • 00:02:19.000 --> 00:02:20.240
  • YOU SEEMED QUITE QUIET
  • 00:02:20.240 --> 00:02:21.240
  • AND SHY.
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:23.000
  • AND YOU WALKED UP ON THAT
  • 00:02:23.000 --> 00:02:24.160
  • PLATFORM AND THE WAY THAT
  • 00:02:24.160 --> 00:02:26.190
  • YOU DELIVERED THE MESSAGE
  • 00:02:26.190 --> 00:02:28.200
  • THAT GOD HAD DEPOSITED
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:30.060
  • IN YOUR HEART REALLY
  • 00:02:30.060 --> 00:02:31.280
  • SHOOK US ALL.
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.280
  • SO IT MADE ME WONDER
  • 00:02:33.280 --> 00:02:36.090
  • BEFORE WE GO BACK,
  • 00:02:36.090 --> 00:02:38.080
  • WAS IT A POINT?
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:39.120
  • DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:02:39.120 --> 00:02:40.170
  • YOU THOUGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:02:40.170 --> 00:02:41.250
  • NO MATTER WHAT THE PAST
  • 00:02:41.250 --> 00:02:43.000
  • HAS BEEN GOD HAS GIVEN ME
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:44.140
  • A MESSAGE TO SHARE AND
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:46.050
  • I'M GOING TO SHARE IT.
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:47.140
  • Sarah: TO BE HONEST,
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:48.250
  • BECAUSE NO MATTER HOW MANY
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:52.020
  • OBSTACLES YOU OVERCOME
  • 00:02:52.020 --> 00:02:53.150
  • THERE'S ALWAYS A NEW GIANT
  • 00:02:53.150 --> 00:02:54.230
  • IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:56.070
  • OURSELVES WITH THE REALITY
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:03:00.180
  • THAT THE PRESENT WILL
  • 00:03:00.180 --> 00:03:02.030
  • EVENTUALLY BECOME THE PAST.
  • 00:03:02.030 --> 00:03:04.020
  • SO WE HAVE TO CONSTANTLY
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.170
  • STRIVE TO MAKE THIS MOMENT
  • 00:03:05.170 --> 00:03:07.060
  • OUR BEST MOMENT NO MATTER
  • 00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:08.170
  • WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE KIDS
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:10.000
  • OR OUR HUSBAND OR WHATEVER
  • 00:03:10.000 --> 00:03:11.090
  • IS GOING ON IN
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:12.110
  • OUR PERSONAL LIVES,
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:13.160
  • THAT WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:03:13.160 --> 00:03:14.190
  • TO REALLY SHARE JESUS
  • 00:03:14.190 --> 00:03:16.020
  • IN A FRESH NEW WAY.
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:17.050
  • SO I TAKE THAT SERIOUSLY
  • 00:03:17.050 --> 00:03:18.180
  • EVERY CHANCE I GET.
  • 00:03:18.180 --> 00:03:20.010
  • Sheila: WELL, IN 2001
  • 00:03:20.070 --> 00:03:23.070
  • YOUR DAD, BISHOP T.D. JAKES
  • 00:03:23.070 --> 00:03:25.170
  • WAS ON THE COVER
  • 00:03:25.170 --> 00:03:26.220
  • OF TIME MAGAZINE.
  • 00:03:26.220 --> 00:03:27.280
  • I REMEMBER THAT EDITION.
  • 00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:29.040
  • THE MINUTE I SAW IT
  • 00:03:29.040 --> 00:03:30.030
  • I BOUGHT IT BECAUSE
  • 00:03:30.030 --> 00:03:31.020
  • I THOUGHT, WOW!
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:32.030
  • THIS IS A LANDMARK,
  • 00:03:32.030 --> 00:03:33.070
  • REALLY IN WHAT GOD IS DOING
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:34.110
  • IN OUR NATION.
  • 00:03:34.110 --> 00:03:35.120
  • HOW OLD WERE YOU AT THE TIME?
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:36.170
  • Sarah: I WAS 12 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:38.080
  • Sheila: TELL US WHAT THE NEXT
  • 00:03:38.080 --> 00:03:39.110
  • YEAR LOOKED LIKE FOR YOU.
  • 00:03:39.110 --> 00:03:41.030
  • BECAUSE JUST PEEKING THROUGH
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:42.050
  • YOUR WINDOW IT WOULD LOOK
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:43.050
  • LIKE EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.
  • 00:03:43.050 --> 00:03:45.010
  • BUT YOU WERE GOING THROUGH
  • 00:03:45.010 --> 00:03:46.020
  • SOME TOUGH STUFF.
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:47.150
  • Sarah: I WAS.
  • 00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:48.170
  • I WAS STRUGGLING SIGNIFICANTLY
  • 00:03:48.170 --> 00:03:49.240
  • WITH MY SELF-ESTEEM
  • 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:51.110
  • TRYING TO DETERMINE WHERE
  • 00:03:51.110 --> 00:03:52.160
  • I FIT IN A FAMILY THAT OFTEN
  • 00:03:52.160 --> 00:03:54.070
  • SEEMED BIGGER THAN MYSELF.
  • 00:03:54.070 --> 00:03:56.100
  • AND AT 13 YEARS OLD I GOT
  • 00:03:56.100 --> 00:03:58.030
  • PREGNANT, I HAD MY SON
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:03:59.210
  • AT 14 YEARS OLD AND FROM
  • 00:03:59.210 --> 00:04:02.040
  • THERE JUST THE SHAME, THE FEAR
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:05.110
  • OF NOT BEING ABLE TO REALLY
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:07.160
  • HAVE A DESTINY THAT LIVED UP
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:08.280
  • TO THE LAST NAME THAT I CARRY
  • 00:04:08.280 --> 00:04:11.020
  • TAUNTED AND HAUNTED ME
  • 00:04:11.020 --> 00:04:12.130
  • FOR MANY, MANY YEARS.
  • 00:04:12.130 --> 00:04:14.090
  • BUT WHAT I THINK IS UNIQUE,
  • 00:04:14.090 --> 00:04:16.100
  • IF YOU WILL, ABOUT MY STORY
  • 00:04:16.100 --> 00:04:18.040
  • IS ALSO WHAT SHOULD GIVE
  • 00:04:18.040 --> 00:04:19.160
  • SOME LEVEL OF PEACE
  • 00:04:19.160 --> 00:04:21.010
  • TO OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE
  • 00:04:21.010 --> 00:04:22.200
  • THERE'S THIS MISCONCEPTION
  • 00:04:22.200 --> 00:04:24.030
  • THAT IF YOU HAD ALL
  • 00:04:24.030 --> 00:04:25.100
  • THE RIGHT THINGS, IF I WOULD
  • 00:04:25.100 --> 00:04:26.150
  • HAVE HAD MY PARENTS,
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:27.250
  • IF I WOULD HAVE HAD T.D. JAKES
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:29.050
  • AS MY FATHER, IF I WOULDN'T
  • 00:04:29.050 --> 00:04:30.120
  • HAVE THESE DADDY ISSUES
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:31.210
  • OR THESE SCARS THEN MAYBE
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:32.290
  • LIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:34.010
  • DIFFERENT FOR ME.
  • 00:04:34.010 --> 00:04:35.070
  • BUT THE REALITY IS THAT LIFE
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:36.100
  • DOESN'T SPARE ITS RIDE
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.150
  • ON ANY OF US.
  • 00:04:37.150 --> 00:04:38.180
  • YOU CAN BE
  • 00:04:38.180 --> 00:04:39.200
  • T.D. JAKES' DAUGHTER
  • 00:04:39.200 --> 00:04:40.220
  • OR JOE BLACK'S DAUGHTER AND
  • 00:04:40.220 --> 00:04:42.000
  • YOU'LL HAVE A CROSS TO CARRY.
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:44.110
  • WHAT MATTERS ISN'T WHAT
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:46.070
  • YOU'VE GONE THROUGH BUT
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:47.210
  • WHAT YOU'RE WILLING TO DO
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:49.030
  • WITH THE RESULTS OF
  • 00:04:49.030 --> 00:04:50.070
  • THE BROKEN PIECES THAT
  • 00:04:50.070 --> 00:04:51.100
  • LIFE OFTEN GIVES US.
  • 00:04:51.100 --> 00:04:53.220
  • DID YOU HEAR IN YOUR HEAD
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:56.260
  • KNOWING THAT YOU WERE
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:57.280
  • PREGNANT, YOU WERE ABOUT
  • 00:04:57.280 --> 00:04:59.000
  • TO GIVE BIRTH AND
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:00.050
  • YOU'RE 14 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:05:00.050 --> 00:05:01.050
  • A LITTLE GIRL!
  • 00:05:02.080 --> 00:05:03.090
  • WHAT DID THAT
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.160
  • DO TO YOU INSIDE?
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:05.230
  • Sarah: MAN, I THINK JUST
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:06.290
  • TO GIVE YOU INSIGHT,
  • 00:05:06.290 --> 00:05:08.030
  • THE MINDSET OF SOMEONE THAT
  • 00:05:08.030 --> 00:05:09.080
  • AGE WHEN THEY GET PREGNANT
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:10.150
  • IS THAT I'M GOING
  • 00:05:10.150 --> 00:05:11.190
  • TO GET IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:13.070
  • WITHOUT ANY REAL REALITY
  • 00:05:13.070 --> 00:05:16.010
  • OF RECOGNIZING THAT
  • 00:05:16.010 --> 00:05:17.120
  • IT'S BIGGER THAN JUST TIME OUT
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:19.130
  • OR BEING GROUNDED;
  • 00:05:19.130 --> 00:05:20.180
  • THAT YOU'RE BRINGING A LIFE
  • 00:05:20.180 --> 00:05:21.220
  • INTO THE WORLD BEFORE
  • 00:05:21.220 --> 00:05:22.210
  • YOU'VE EVEN DISCOVERED
  • 00:05:22.210 --> 00:05:23.220
  • WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:05:23.220 --> 00:05:25.140
  • I FELT SO MUCH SHAME.
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:26.200
  • I FELT DIRTY.
  • 00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:27.280
  • I FELT EMBARRASSED.
  • 00:05:27.280 --> 00:05:29.290
  • WE ALL GO THROUGH SOMETHING.
  • 00:05:29.290 --> 00:05:31.270
  • I THINK IT'S A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:33.010
  • MORE CHALLENGING WHEN
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:35.040
  • YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:36.160
  • YOUR OWN ISSUES.
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:38.030
  • I THINK OFTENTIMES PEOPLE
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:39.200
  • CAN BE VICTIMIZING AND
  • 00:05:39.200 --> 00:05:40.270
  • PEOPLE CAN MAKE DECISIONS
  • 00:05:40.270 --> 00:05:42.110
  • THAT END THEM UP IN PLACES
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:43.260
  • THAT THEY NEVER EXPECTED.
  • 00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:46.060
  • FOR ME, I FELT LIKE BECAUSE
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:47.160
  • I HAD THE POWER TO STOP THIS
  • 00:05:47.160 --> 00:05:48.290
  • AND I DIDN'T THEN THERE MUST
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:50.140
  • SO I SPENT MANY, MANY YEARS
  • 00:05:52.120 --> 00:05:54.020
  • THINKING LESS THAN
  • 00:05:54.020 --> 00:05:55.180
  • WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT ME.
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:57.220
  • I THINK THAT THAT'S SOME
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:05:58.290
  • WHEN WE'RE EXPERIENCING
  • 00:06:00.060 --> 00:06:01.050
  • SHAME IS WE PUNISH OURSELVES.
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:03.040
  • AND WE THINK, IF I BEAT
  • 00:06:03.040 --> 00:06:04.110
  • MYSELF UP IN MY HEAD --
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:05.120
  • I USED TO CALL MYSELF
  • 00:06:05.120 --> 00:06:06.110
  • ALL THE NAMES IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:07.120
  • YOU'RE A HO!
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:08.200
  • NOBODY WANTS YOU.
  • 00:06:08.200 --> 00:06:09.210
  • JUST ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:11.080
  • AND I LIVED THAT UNTIL
  • 00:06:11.080 --> 00:06:12.250
  • IT BECAME MY REALITY AND
  • 00:06:12.250 --> 00:06:14.110
  • THEN I HATED WHO I BECAME.
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:16.170
  • I JUST HAD TO MAKE A DECISION
  • 00:06:16.170 --> 00:06:18.020
  • THAT ULTIMATELY YOU CAN
  • 00:06:18.020 --> 00:06:19.110
  • CONTINUE TO LISTEN TO
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:20.170
  • THESE VOICES OF SHAME
  • 00:06:20.170 --> 00:06:21.280
  • IN YOUR HEAD OR YOU CAN
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:23.040
  • DECIDE I'M JUST GOING TO TRY
  • 00:06:23.040 --> 00:06:24.230
  • AND LIVE ON THE FAITH THAT
  • 00:06:24.230 --> 00:06:26.240
  • I AM WHO GOD SAYS I AM;
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:28.140
  • THAT I AM FEARFULLY
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:29.190
  • AND WONDERFULLY MADE.
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:30.220
  • IN SPITE OF WHAT I'VE GONE
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:31.270
  • THROUGH, IN SPITE OF WHAT
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:33.020
  • MY PAST LOOKS LIKE ON PAPER,
  • 00:06:33.020 --> 00:06:34.090
  • I WANT TO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:06:34.090 --> 00:06:36.030
  • I'M BETTER THAN THE MISTAKES
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:37.100
  • THAT I'VE MADE.
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:38.170
  • AND THE MOMENT I LIVED
  • 00:06:38.170 --> 00:06:39.200
  • IN THAT CONSCIOUSNESS
  • 00:06:39.200 --> 00:06:40.210
  • I STARTED NOTICING THINGS
  • 00:06:40.210 --> 00:06:41.250
  • CHANGE FOR ME AND BEGIN
  • 00:06:41.250 --> 00:06:42.270
  • TO TURN AROUND.
  • 00:06:42.270 --> 00:06:44.080
  • WHAT I'M MOST PROUD OF,
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:45.230
  • THOUGH I HAVE BOOK DEALS
  • 00:06:45.230 --> 00:06:48.210
  • AND I'VE BEEN SO BLESSED
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:50.000
  • TO BE ON THESE TOURS,
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:51.040
  • WHAT I'M MOST PROUD OF IS
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:52.260
  • THAT I LOOK IN THE MIRROR
  • 00:06:52.260 --> 00:06:54.010
  • AND I LOVE THE GIRL I AM.
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:55.190
  • THE UGLY TRUTH AND
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:56.220
  • THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS,
  • 00:06:56.220 --> 00:06:57.270
  • AND I'M NO LONGER ASHAMED
  • 00:06:57.270 --> 00:06:59.000
  • OF WHO I AM.
  • 00:06:59.000 --> 00:07:01.000
  • [Applause]
  • 00:07:02.220 --> 00:07:05.220
  • Sheila: YES! I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:07.170
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:09.180
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:07:09.180 --> 00:07:10.240
  • KIND OF BLEW ME AWAY
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:11.270
  • ABOUT YOU, I KNOW THAT YOU
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:13.200
  • WENT INTO A MARRIAGE THAT
  • 00:07:13.200 --> 00:07:15.020
  • WAS VERY ABUSIVE, THAT JUST
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:17.110
  • TORE AT YOU FURTHER,
  • 00:07:17.110 --> 00:07:19.200
  • GAVE YOU MORE
  • 00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:20.240
  • NEGATIVE MESSAGES.
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:22.230
  • BUT WHEN THAT WAS
  • 00:07:22.230 --> 00:07:23.250
  • DOING WHAT PEOPLE OF
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:27.040
  • MY GENERATION TENDED TO DO,
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:28.200
  • WHICH WAS TO TRY AND CRAWL
  • 00:07:28.200 --> 00:07:29.260
  • UNDER THE CARPET AND HOPE
  • 00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:31.020
  • WE'VE DONE THE BIG
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:33.160
  • UNFORGIVABLE SIN,
  • 00:07:33.160 --> 00:07:34.280
  • YOU BEGAN TO WRITE.
  • 00:07:34.280 --> 00:07:36.010
  • YOU BEGAN TO BLOG.
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:37.210
  • WHAT LED YOU TO BE SO OPEN
  • 00:07:37.210 --> 00:07:40.020
  • AND TRANSPARENT IN THE MIDST
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:41.190
  • OF WHAT WAS PAINFUL?
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:43.160
  • Sarah: I'M A CHURCH GIRL.
  • 00:07:43.160 --> 00:07:44.260
  • I GREW UP IN CHURCH AND
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:46.000
  • I KNOW THAT IT'S NOT OFTEN
  • 00:07:46.000 --> 00:07:47.270
  • VERY EASY TO VOCALIZE
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:49.240
  • WHY WE COME TO CHURCH.
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:51.140
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FAITHFUL
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:52.250
  • BUT THEY DON'T NECESSARILY
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:54.070
  • EXPLAIN THE JOURNEY
  • 00:07:54.070 --> 00:07:55.230
  • THAT LED THEM BACK TO GOD.
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:57.210
  • I WANTED TO SAVE SOMEONE
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:59.080
  • FROM GOING THROUGH WHAT
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:00.190
  • I WENT THROUGH.
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:01.270
  • I THINK THAT OUR SYMPTOMS
  • 00:08:01.270 --> 00:08:03.120
  • ARE ALL DIFFERENT.
  • 00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:04.190
  • MINE MAY HAVE BEEN A TEEN
  • 00:08:04.190 --> 00:08:05.250
  • PREGNANCY, MINE MAY HAVE
  • 00:08:05.250 --> 00:08:06.280
  • BEEN LOW SELF-ESTEEM BUT
  • 00:08:06.280 --> 00:08:08.200
  • THE REALITY IS THAT
  • 00:08:08.200 --> 00:08:09.260
  • WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING.
  • 00:08:09.260 --> 00:08:11.160
  • I JUST REFUSED TO BE
  • 00:08:11.160 --> 00:08:13.130
  • HANDCUFFED BY MY SOMETHING.
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:16.060
  • IF THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:17.150
  • TO BREAK FREE FROM IT
  • 00:08:17.150 --> 00:08:18.190
  • THAT I WOULDN'T LET
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:19.220
  • EMBARRASSMENT DICTATE WHAT
  • 00:08:19.220 --> 00:08:21.150
  • I TOLD OTHER PEOPLE ANYMORE.
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:23.160
  • SO I MADE THE VERY CONSCIOUS
  • 00:08:23.160 --> 00:08:24.280
  • DECISION TO SHARE
  • 00:08:24.280 --> 00:08:27.030
  • THE INCREDIBLE, I CALLED THEM
  • 00:08:27.030 --> 00:08:29.170
  • RATCHET ON THE
  • 00:08:29.170 --> 00:08:30.260
  • WOMEN OF FAITH TOUR.
  • 00:08:30.260 --> 00:08:32.120
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:34.140
  • -- MOMENTS OF MY LIFE THAT
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:35.230
  • YOU WOULD NEVER ASSOCIATE
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:37.040
  • WITH T.D. JAKES' DAUGHTER.
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:38.100
  • BUT I NEEDED PEOPLE TO KNOW
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:40.090
  • THAT THIS HAPPENED TO ME.
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:42.200
  • IT MAY HAVE HAPPENED
  • 00:08:42.200 --> 00:08:43.260
  • TO SOMEONE ELSE BUT THAT
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:45.020
  • DOESN'T MAKE US LESS THAN.
  • 00:08:45.020 --> 00:08:46.030
  • THAT 13 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO'S
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:49.040
  • RUBBING HER SWOLLEN BELLY
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:50.180
  • OR THE 27 YEAR OLD WOMAN
  • 00:08:50.180 --> 00:08:52.180
  • WHO IS WONDERING IF SHE IS
  • 00:08:52.180 --> 00:08:53.220
  • WHO SHE IS AS A WOMAN.
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:56.250
  • I WANTED TO ENCOURAGE THEM
  • 00:08:56.250 --> 00:08:58.030
  • THAT YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
  • 00:08:58.030 --> 00:08:59.050
  • PAIN ISOLATES US.
  • 00:08:59.050 --> 00:09:00.240
  • WHEN PAIN ISOLATES US
  • 00:09:00.240 --> 00:09:02.030
  • IT CREATES INFECTION.
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:03.230
  • WHEN WE HAVE INFECTION
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:04.290
  • WE HAVE THESE ACTIONS
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:06.050
  • THAT DEMONSTRATE THAT
  • 00:09:06.050 --> 00:09:07.080
  • WE'RE HURTING ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:08.260
  • I WANTED THEM TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:09:08.260 --> 00:09:10.050
  • WHAT YOU'RE EXPERIENCING
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:11.150
  • IS SIMPLY A SYMPTOM.
  • 00:09:11.150 --> 00:09:12.290
  • IF WE CAN GET RID OF
  • 00:09:12.290 --> 00:09:14.040
  • THE DISEASE, IF WE CAN
  • 00:09:14.040 --> 00:09:15.050
  • PULL THAT THING UP FROM
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:16.090
  • THE ROOT THAT YOU CAN HAVE
  • 00:09:16.090 --> 00:09:17.140
  • THE LIFE THAT YOU ALWAYS
  • 00:09:17.140 --> 00:09:18.190
  • DREAMED OF.
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:20.050
  • WHEN I WAS READING THAT PART
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:23.070
  • OF YOUR STORY IN YOUR BOOK
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:24.180
  • IT REMINDED ME OF YOUR
  • 00:09:24.180 --> 00:09:26.010
  • SITUATION WAS DIFFERENT;
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:27.060
  • MINE WAS I ENDED UP
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:28.090
  • WITH CLINICAL DEPRESSION,
  • 00:09:29.130 --> 00:09:30.250
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T HAVE MUCH
  • 00:09:30.250 --> 00:09:31.290
  • CURB APPEAL IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:09:31.290 --> 00:09:33.050
  • TO HAVE MENTAL ILLNESS.
  • 00:09:33.050 --> 00:09:34.160
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:09:34.160 --> 00:09:35.190
  • -- CURB APPEAL OF CABBAGE,
  • 00:09:35.190 --> 00:09:36.210
  • BASICALLY.
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:38.030
  • BUT THE THING THAT I LEARNED
  • 00:09:38.030 --> 00:09:39.060
  • DURING THAT JOURNEY IS THAT
  • 00:09:39.060 --> 00:09:40.130
  • I'M NOT THE GOOD NEWS,
  • 00:09:40.130 --> 00:09:41.200
  • JESUS IS.
  • 00:09:41.200 --> 00:09:42.250
  • WHAT A BLOOMING RELIEF
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:43.280
  • THAT IS!
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:45.010
  • BECAUSE SO OFTEN I GREW UP
  • 00:09:45.010 --> 00:09:46.020
  • GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD.
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:48.080
  • AND SOMETIMES, IT'S AT
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:49.170
  • THE WORST MOMENTS THAT
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:50.230
  • YOU FIND THE GREATEST FREEDOM.
  • 00:09:50.230 --> 00:09:52.060
  • Sarah: ABSOLUTELY!
  • 00:09:52.060 --> 00:09:53.090
  • IN OUR WEAKNESS BUT NO ONE
  • 00:09:54.130 --> 00:09:55.230
  • IS WILLING TO ADMIT
  • 00:09:55.230 --> 00:09:57.010
  • THAT THEY'RE WEAK.
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:58.070
  • I THINK ESPECIALLY WHEN
  • 00:09:58.070 --> 00:09:59.130
  • YOU FIND YOURSELF IN CHURCH
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:00.200
  • AND YOU'RE SERVING ON
  • 00:10:00.200 --> 00:10:01.230
  • THE USHER BOARD OR
  • 00:10:01.230 --> 00:10:02.290
  • YOU'RE THERE EVERY WEEK --
  • 00:10:02.290 --> 00:10:04.090
  • THAT WE THINK ONCE WE START
  • 00:10:04.090 --> 00:10:05.110
  • GOING TO CHURCH WE'VE ARRIVED
  • 00:10:05.110 --> 00:10:06.200
  • AND WE NO LONGER HAVE ISSUES
  • 00:10:06.200 --> 00:10:07.260
  • OR STRUGGLES.
  • 00:10:07.260 --> 00:10:08.290
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE LEADERSHIP
  • 00:10:08.290 --> 00:10:10.130
  • AND VULNERABILITY TO
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:12.020
  • CONSTANTLY REMOVE THE MESS
  • 00:10:12.020 --> 00:10:14.070
  • THAT CHURCH OFTEN MAKES US
  • 00:10:14.070 --> 00:10:15.220
  • PLACE ON AND SAY,
  • 00:10:15.220 --> 00:10:17.100
  • "I'M HERE BECAUSE I NEED
  • 00:10:17.100 --> 00:10:18.120
  • A SAVIOR NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:19.150
  • I AM ONE."
  • 00:10:19.150 --> 00:10:20.220
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:20.220 --> 00:10:22.180
  • Sheila: THAT'S GREAT!
  • 00:10:22.180 --> 00:10:24.020
  • I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:10:24.020 --> 00:10:25.160
  • IT MAKES ME WONDER,
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:27.070
  • YOUR WONDERFUL HUSBAND
  • 00:10:27.070 --> 00:10:28.180
  • AND YOU...
  • 00:10:28.180 --> 00:10:29.240
  • YOUR HUSBAND IS JUST ADORABLE
  • 00:10:29.240 --> 00:10:31.060
  • AND HE JUST ADORES YOU.
  • 00:10:31.060 --> 00:10:32.250
  • IT'S VERY CLEAR,
  • 00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:34.020
  • VERY SWEET TO WATCH.
  • 00:10:34.020 --> 00:10:35.100
  • BUT I WONDER HOW YOUR STORY
  • 00:10:35.100 --> 00:10:37.070
  • AND YOUR JOURNEY HAS IMPACTED
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:38.190
  • HOW YOU PASTOR?
  • 00:10:38.190 --> 00:10:41.190
  • Sarah: I THINK THAT IT HAS
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:43.010
  • MADE US MORE EFFECTIVE
  • 00:10:43.010 --> 00:10:44.110
  • AS PASTORS.
  • 00:10:44.110 --> 00:10:45.200
  • WE BOTH HAVE VERY
  • 00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:47.130
  • DIFFERENT STORIES,
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:48.170
  • VERY DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS
  • 00:10:48.170 --> 00:10:50.060
  • BUT WE'VE LIVED SUCH
  • 00:10:50.060 --> 00:10:51.170
  • FULL LIVES THAT WHEN PEOPLE
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:52.260
  • WALK INTO OUR CONGREGATION
  • 00:10:52.260 --> 00:10:54.260
  • AT ONE CHURCH IN LOS ANGELES
  • 00:10:54.260 --> 00:10:56.250
  • THAT WE'RE NOT EXPECTING THEM
  • 00:10:56.250 --> 00:10:58.070
  • TO BE THE EXPECTED END
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:11:00.030
  • THAT IS PROMISED TO US.
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:01.250
  • WE RECOGNIZE THAT THEY ARE
  • 00:11:01.250 --> 00:11:03.040
  • A WORK IN PROGRESS.
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:04.160
  • AND OUR JOB AS PASTORS
  • 00:11:04.160 --> 00:11:06.010
  • IS TO INSPIRE THEM TO LIVE UP
  • 00:11:06.010 --> 00:11:08.040
  • TO GOD'S POTENTIAL FOR
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:09.160
  • THEIR LIVES BUT TO ALSO
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:11.020
  • LET THEM KNOW THAT
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:12.060
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE WORK
  • 00:11:12.060 --> 00:11:13.190
  • AND IT'S GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:11:13.190 --> 00:11:14.230
  • SACRIFICE.
  • 00:11:14.230 --> 00:11:15.280
  • BUT THERE IS NOTHING THAT
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:17.010
  • YOU LOSE IN CHRIST THAT
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:18.050
  • HE DOESN'T GIVE BACK
  • 00:11:18.050 --> 00:11:19.060
  • A HUNDREDFOLD.
  • 00:11:19.060 --> 00:11:21.230
  • Sheila: I'M THINKING OF
  • 00:11:21.230 --> 00:11:22.290
  • SOMEBODY WATCHING RIGHT NOW
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:24.030
  • AND MAYBE THEY'RE IN
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:25.070
  • A SITUATION LIKE YOU WERE
  • 00:11:25.070 --> 00:11:26.150
  • AND THEY FEEL LIKE THEY'LL
  • 00:11:26.150 --> 00:11:28.110
  • NEVER BE ABLE TO LIVE OUT
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:29.190
  • THEIR DESTINY, WILL ALWAYS
  • 00:11:29.190 --> 00:11:30.230
  • BE SECOND BEST, WHAT WOULD
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:32.280
  • Sarah: AS LONG AS YOU THINK
  • 00:11:34.200 --> 00:11:35.190
  • YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO GET OUT
  • 00:11:35.190 --> 00:11:36.260
  • OF IT, YOU WON'T.
  • 00:11:36.260 --> 00:11:38.110
  • THAT GOD IS IN THE BUSINESS
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:39.180
  • OF TRANSFORMING OUR MINDS.
  • 00:11:39.180 --> 00:11:41.180
  • THE THOUGHTS THAT YOU THINK
  • 00:11:42.210 --> 00:11:43.220
  • OF YOURSELF.
  • 00:11:43.220 --> 00:11:45.000
  • THE MESSAGE THAT I SHARE
  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:46.060
  • IN THE COLLECTION IS CALLED
  • 00:11:46.060 --> 00:11:47.090
  • "SEARCHING FOR GOLD"
  • 00:11:47.090 --> 00:11:48.190
  • AND HOW WE OFTEN HAVE
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:49.240
  • THESE TIMES IN OUR LIVES
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:51.000
  • WHERE WE'RE STILL SEARCHING
  • 00:11:51.000 --> 00:11:52.020
  • FOR GOLD.
  • 00:11:52.020 --> 00:11:53.060
  • AND I TALK ABOUT
  • 00:11:53.060 --> 00:11:54.100
  • THE CALIFORNIA GOLD RUSH
  • 00:11:54.100 --> 00:11:55.110
  • AND HOW BY THE TIME THE LAST
  • 00:11:55.110 --> 00:11:56.150
  • PEOPLE GOT THERE THAT
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:57.160
  • THE GOLD HAD BEEN EMBEDDED
  • 00:11:57.160 --> 00:11:58.230
  • IN THE ROCKS SO THEY HAD
  • 00:11:58.230 --> 00:11:59.240
  • TO BE WILLING TO BREAK
  • 00:11:59.240 --> 00:12:00.290
  • THE ROCK TO GET TO THE GOLD.
  • 00:12:00.290 --> 00:12:02.150
  • MY MESSAGE IS ULTIMATELY
  • 00:12:02.150 --> 00:12:03.220
  • THAT LIFE HARDENS US.
  • 00:12:03.220 --> 00:12:05.210
  • IT MAKES US FEEL LIKE
  • 00:12:05.210 --> 00:12:06.250
  • WE ARE WORTHLESS SOMETIMES,
  • 00:12:06.250 --> 00:12:08.260
  • THAT WE HAVE NO PURPOSE.
  • 00:12:08.260 --> 00:12:10.100
  • BUT THAT GOD HAS PLACED GOLD
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:11.170
  • INSIDE OF US, AND AS LONG
  • 00:12:11.170 --> 00:12:12.250
  • AS WE'RE WILLING TO BREAK
  • 00:12:12.250 --> 00:12:14.010
  • AWAY AT THAT ROCK THEN
  • 00:12:14.010 --> 00:12:15.120
  • WE CAN DISCOVER THE MANY
  • 00:12:15.120 --> 00:12:16.200
  • TREASURES HE'S PLACED
  • 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:17.240
  • INSIDE OF US.
  • 00:12:17.240 --> 00:12:19.230
  • Sheila: WOW!
  • 00:12:19.230 --> 00:12:21.040
  • THIS IS POWERFUL STUFF!
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:23.030
  • IS GOD THE ONE THAT CHIPS AWAY
  • 00:12:23.030 --> 00:12:24.100
  • OR DO WE HAVE
  • 00:12:24.100 --> 00:12:25.200
  • TO BE PARTICIPANTS
  • 00:12:25.200 --> 00:12:27.060
  • IN THAT AS WELL?
  • 00:12:27.060 --> 00:12:28.110
  • Sarah: WE MUST BE
  • 00:12:28.110 --> 00:12:29.190
  • PARTICIPANTS IN THAT.
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:30.270
  • FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD.
  • 00:12:30.270 --> 00:12:32.050
  • I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:12:32.050 --> 00:12:33.060
  • THAT I CAN SAY THAT
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:34.120
  • I STRUGGLED WITH IN
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:35.150
  • MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
  • 00:12:35.150 --> 00:12:36.200
  • IS VOCALIZING THAT PAIN,
  • 00:12:36.200 --> 00:12:38.020
  • VOCALIZING THOSE FEARS
  • 00:12:38.020 --> 00:12:39.180
  • AND THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS.
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:40.250
  • HE DOESN'T WANT THIS IMAGE
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:42.200
  • OF PERFECTION THAT WE PUT ON
  • 00:12:42.200 --> 00:12:44.010
  • FOR OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:45.000
  • HE WANTS OUR BROKENNESS.
  • 00:12:45.000 --> 00:12:46.110
  • IT IS ATTRACTIVE TO HIM.
  • 00:12:46.110 --> 00:12:47.260
  • HE LOVES US IN OUR MOST
  • 00:12:47.260 --> 00:12:49.120
  • VULNERABLE MOMENTS.
  • 00:12:49.120 --> 00:12:50.160
  • AND THERE, WHEN HE IS
  • 00:12:50.160 --> 00:12:51.190
  • IN THAT MOMENT, THAT'S WHERE
  • 00:12:51.190 --> 00:12:53.000
  • THE POWER OF HIS SPIRIT CAN
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:54.080
  • REALLY TRANSFORM OUR LIVES.
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:56.000
  • SO YEAH, WE'VE GOT TO OPEN UP.
  • 00:12:56.000 --> 00:12:57.240
  • WE'VE GOT TO BE HONEST
  • 00:12:57.240 --> 00:12:58.270
  • AND WE HAVE TO BE WILLING
  • 00:12:58.270 --> 00:13:00.050
  • TO ALLOW HIS WORK TO REALLY
  • 00:13:00.050 --> 00:13:01.170
  • TAKE HOLD OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:13:01.170 --> 00:13:03.050
  • WHAT THE CHURCH WOULD BE LIKE
  • 00:13:04.130 --> 00:13:05.170
  • IF WE ALL ACTUALLY BELIEVED
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:07.070
  • THAT AND LIVED LIKE THAT?
  • 00:13:07.070 --> 00:13:08.140
  • BECAUSE SOMETIMES I THINK
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:09.190
  • CHURCH IS ONE OF
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:10.200
  • IT'S WHERE YOU FEEL OBLIGED
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:13.070
  • TO PUT ON A MASK.
  • 00:13:13.070 --> 00:13:14.140
  • HONESTLY, I DISCOVERED THAT
  • 00:13:14.140 --> 00:13:16.180
  • WHEN YOU'RE HIDING YOUR PAIN,
  • 00:13:16.180 --> 00:13:18.090
  • SOMETIMES WE HIDE BEHIND FOOD
  • 00:13:18.090 --> 00:13:19.140
  • OR CLOTHES OR ALCOHOL
  • 00:13:19.140 --> 00:13:21.050
  • OR RELATIONSHIPS, I FOUND
  • 00:13:21.050 --> 00:13:22.190
  • THE PERFECT PLACE TO HIDE
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:23.240
  • WHICH WAS CHRISTIAN MINISTRY
  • 00:13:23.240 --> 00:13:25.040
  • BECAUSE WHO IS GOING TO SAY
  • 00:13:25.040 --> 00:13:26.210
  • TO YOU, "PUT THAT BIBLE DOWN
  • 00:13:26.210 --> 00:13:27.270
  • OR WE'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:13:27.270 --> 00:13:28.290
  • AN INTERVENTION!"
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:30.050
  • IT'S PROBABLY NOT
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:31.050
  • GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:32.080
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:13:32.080 --> 00:13:33.090
  • BUT GOD IS THE ONLY ONE
  • 00:13:33.090 --> 00:13:34.120
  • WHO ACTUALLY KNOWS WHETHER
  • 00:13:34.120 --> 00:13:35.130
  • WE'RE SERVING OUT OF PAIN
  • 00:13:35.130 --> 00:13:36.130
  • OR PASSION.
  • 00:13:36.130 --> 00:13:37.180
  • I THINK YOU ARE EXHIBITING
  • 00:13:37.180 --> 00:13:38.230
  • A NEW KIND OF LEADERSHIP,
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:39.270
  • SARAH, A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE
  • 00:13:39.270 --> 00:13:42.190
  • ARE ALLOWED TO TELL THE TRUTH.
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:45.070
  • I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:46.100
  • ARE AFRAID OF THAT BECAUSE
  • 00:13:46.100 --> 00:13:47.090
  • THEY THINK THEN YOU'RE JUST
  • 00:13:47.090 --> 00:13:48.080
  • GIVING LIBERTY TO PEOPLE
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:49.090
  • TO JUST ACT ANY WAY AT ALL.
  • 00:13:49.090 --> 00:13:50.140
  • IS THAT YOUR EXPERIENCE?
  • 00:13:50.140 --> 00:13:52.080
  • Sarah: NOT AT ALL.
  • 00:13:52.080 --> 00:13:53.180
  • I THINK WE HAVE TO MEET
  • 00:13:53.180 --> 00:13:54.230
  • PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE.
  • 00:13:54.230 --> 00:13:55.240
  • TIME AND TIME AGAIN WE SEE
  • 00:13:55.240 --> 00:13:56.250
  • JESUS IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:13:56.250 --> 00:13:58.090
  • MEETING PEOPLE RIGHT
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:13:59.100
  • WHERE THEY ARE.
  • 00:13:59.100 --> 00:14:00.160
  • IF WE ROB PEOPLE FROM
  • 00:14:00.160 --> 00:14:01.200
  • THEIR ABILITY TO BE HONEST
  • 00:14:01.200 --> 00:14:03.110
  • AND TO SHARE THAT TRUTH,
  • 00:14:03.110 --> 00:14:04.220
  • THEN THE POWER OF THE WORD
  • 00:14:04.220 --> 00:14:06.110
  • LOSES ITS POWER BECAUSE
  • 00:14:06.110 --> 00:14:08.060
  • WE'RE NOT ABLE TO REALLY
  • 00:14:08.060 --> 00:14:09.150
  • BE HONEST WITH THEM.
  • 00:14:09.150 --> 00:14:10.280
  • WHETHER IT WAS A PROSTITUTE
  • 00:14:10.280 --> 00:14:12.150
  • IN THE BIBLE OR A LEPER,
  • 00:14:12.150 --> 00:14:13.250
  • "THE UNTOUCHABLES,"
  • 00:14:13.250 --> 00:14:15.010
  • THAT'S WHO JESUS CAME FOR.
  • 00:14:15.010 --> 00:14:16.090
  • SO I DON'T MIND TOUCHING
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:17.230
  • THE UNTOUCHABLES.
  • 00:14:17.230 --> 00:14:19.180
  • THEN HOPEFULLY I CAN BE
  • 00:14:19.180 --> 00:14:21.000
  • A BRIDGE UNTIL THEY'RE STRONG
  • 00:14:21.000 --> 00:14:22.110
  • IN CHRIST AND THEN READY
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:23.180
  • TO GO OUT AND CATCH ANOTHER.
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:24.270
  • BUT EACH ONE MUST TEACH ONE
  • 00:14:24.270 --> 00:14:26.190
  • AND THAT'S HOW WE WILL
  • 00:14:26.190 --> 00:14:27.290
  • CHANGE THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:29.200
  • Sheila: IF YOU COULD GO BACK,
  • 00:14:29.200 --> 00:14:30.260
  • WOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR STORY?
  • 00:14:30.260 --> 00:14:32.010
  • Sarah: I WOULDN'T.
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:33.110
  • Sheila: I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:34.140
  • Sarah: I WOULDN'T.
  • 00:14:34.140 --> 00:14:35.240
  • IT TAUGHT ME SO MUCH
  • 00:14:35.240 --> 00:14:36.260
  • I THINK THAT IF I WENT BACK
  • 00:14:38.130 --> 00:14:39.180
  • AND CHANGED THAT STORY
  • 00:14:39.180 --> 00:14:40.200
  • THAT I WOULD HAVE
  • 00:14:40.200 --> 00:14:41.220
  • A DIFFERENT ONE THAT MAY
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:42.290
  • BE JUST AS CHALLENGING
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.120
  • OF OBSTACLES TO OVERCOME.
  • 00:14:45.240 --> 00:14:47.240
  • BUT I LOVE MY SON;
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:50.070
  • HE'S EVERYTHING TO ME.
  • 00:14:50.070 --> 00:14:51.250
  • Sheila: HOW OLD
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:52.290
  • IS YOUR SON NOW?
  • 00:14:52.290 --> 00:14:54.030
  • Sarah: HE'S 13.
  • 00:14:54.030 --> 00:14:55.040
  • HE'S TALLER THAN ME.
  • 00:14:55.040 --> 00:14:56.030
  • SO CAN YOU ALL PRAY
  • 00:14:56.030 --> 00:14:57.080
  • THAT HE STOPS GROWING?
  • 00:14:57.080 --> 00:14:58.150
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:58.150 --> 00:14:59.200
  • Sheila: I KNOW WHAT
  • 00:14:59.200 --> 00:15:00.240
  • THAT'S LIKE!
  • 00:15:00.240 --> 00:15:01.250
  • MY SON JUST CAME HOME
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:02.260
  • FROM COLLEGE AND HE WAS JUST
  • 00:15:02.260 --> 00:15:03.270
  • THIS LITTLE BOY AND NOW
  • 00:15:03.270 --> 00:15:04.280
  • HE IS LIKE 6'1".
  • 00:15:04.280 --> 00:15:06.070
  • Sarah: WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM?
  • 00:15:06.070 --> 00:15:07.120
  • Sheila: I HAVE NO IDEA.
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:08.110
  • I'M ALMOST SURE WHEN
  • 00:15:08.110 --> 00:15:09.130
  • HE WAS TWO I MADE HIM SIGN
  • 00:15:09.130 --> 00:15:10.130
  • SOMETHING TO SAY THIS WOULD
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:11.130
  • NOT HAPPEN BUT HE'S CLEARLY
  • 00:15:11.130 --> 00:15:12.130
  • GONE AGAINST THE DEAL.
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:13.170
  • Sarah: YOU SHOULD SPANK HIM!
  • 00:15:13.170 --> 00:15:14.220
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:15:14.220 --> 00:15:16.150
  • Sheila: I'M WONDERING
  • 00:15:16.150 --> 00:15:17.210
  • HOW THE EXPERIENCE OF WHAT
  • 00:15:17.210 --> 00:15:18.230
  • HAPPENED TO YOU AT 13
  • 00:15:18.230 --> 00:15:19.250
  • AND THEN BECOMING A MOM,
  • 00:15:19.250 --> 00:15:20.270
  • HOW HAS THAT -- BECAUSE I KNOW
  • 00:15:20.270 --> 00:15:22.060
  • YOU HAVE A NEW BABY GIRL.
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:24.040
  • HOW OLD IS SHE?
  • 00:15:24.040 --> 00:15:25.250
  • Sarah: SHE IS THREE
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:26.270
  • MONTHS OLD.
  • 00:15:26.270 --> 00:15:28.040
  • SHE IS THE BOSS OF ME TOO.
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:29.200
  • I'M VERY TIRED.
  • 00:15:29.200 --> 00:15:31.070
  • Sheila: WELL, YOU LOOK GREAT!
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:32.150
  • BUT I'M WONDERING HOW
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:33.280
  • YOUR EXPERIENCE WILL CHANGE
  • 00:15:33.280 --> 00:15:35.030
  • HOW YOU MOTHER
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:36.170
  • THIS LITTLE GIRL?
  • 00:15:36.170 --> 00:15:37.290
  • Sarah: OH, GOODNESS!
  • 00:15:37.290 --> 00:15:39.240
  • IT'S TAUGHT ME
  • 00:15:39.240 --> 00:15:40.280
  • TO BE MORE SENSITIVE.
  • 00:15:40.280 --> 00:15:42.030
  • IT'S TAUGHT ME NOT TO PUT
  • 00:15:42.030 --> 00:15:43.040
  • MY OWN INSECURITIES ON HER
  • 00:15:43.040 --> 00:15:45.250
  • BECAUSE IT COULD BE VERY EASY
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:46.290
  • AS A TEENAGED MOM TO BUILD
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:48.140
  • THIS PARENTING PARADIGM
  • 00:15:48.140 --> 00:15:50.260
  • AROUND YOU NOT BEING
  • 00:15:50.260 --> 00:15:51.290
  • PREGNANT AT THE AGE OF 13.
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:53.240
  • BUT THE REALITY IS THAT THAT
  • 00:15:53.240 --> 00:15:55.110
  • WOULD THEN DESENSITIZE ME
  • 00:15:55.110 --> 00:15:56.220
  • TO THE OTHER ISSUES
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:15:57.250
  • SHE MAY FACE.
  • 00:15:57.250 --> 00:15:59.140
  • SO IT'S REALLY MADE ME
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:00.180
  • ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD SO THAT
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:02.010
  • I CAN REALLY GUIDE
  • 00:16:02.010 --> 00:16:03.090
  • AND NURTURE HER THE WAY
  • 00:16:03.090 --> 00:16:04.110
  • HE DESIRES, NOT THE WAY
  • 00:16:04.110 --> 00:16:05.130
  • Sheila: I REMEMBER IN
  • 00:16:08.100 --> 00:16:09.170
  • THE DALLAS WOMEN OF FAITH
  • 00:16:09.170 --> 00:16:10.250
  • CONFERENCE YOUR MOM WAS THERE
  • 00:16:10.250 --> 00:16:13.140
  • OR AUNTS?
  • 00:16:15.160 --> 00:16:17.110
  • BUT I REMEMBER HALFWAY THROUGH
  • 00:16:17.110 --> 00:16:19.000
  • YOUR MESSAGE LOOKING OVER
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:20.070
  • AT YOUR MOM AND WATCHING
  • 00:16:20.070 --> 00:16:22.030
  • THE WONDER IN HER EYES AS SHE
  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:24.150
  • SAW THIS STRONG, BEAUTIFUL,
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:27.010
  • GODLY WOMAN ON STAGE.
  • 00:16:27.010 --> 00:16:29.270
  • WE ALL KIND OF COMMENTED
  • 00:16:29.270 --> 00:16:31.010
  • TO EACH OTHER,
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:32.010
  • "LOOK AT SARAH'S MOM!
  • 00:16:32.010 --> 00:16:33.060
  • LOOK AT FIRST LADY JAKES.
  • 00:16:33.060 --> 00:16:34.140
  • SHE'S CLEARLY BEEN
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:35.180
  • SO IMPACTED."
  • 00:16:35.180 --> 00:16:37.080
  • I WONDERED, DID IT HARM
  • 00:16:37.080 --> 00:16:38.180
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • 00:16:38.180 --> 00:16:39.230
  • YOUR PARENTS WHEN THINGS
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:40.260
  • WENT SO WRONG?
  • 00:16:40.260 --> 00:16:42.130
  • Sarah: I DON'T THINK ANYONE
  • 00:16:42.130 --> 00:16:43.220
  • IMAGINES THAT THEIR DAUGHTER
  • 00:16:43.220 --> 00:16:45.010
  • WILL BE PREGNANT AT THE AGE
  • 00:16:45.010 --> 00:16:46.050
  • OF 13 OR DROP OUT OF COLLEGE
  • 00:16:46.050 --> 00:16:48.060
  • OR WAITRESS AT A STRIP CLUB
  • 00:16:48.060 --> 00:16:49.220
  • OR GET MARRIED AND DIVORCED.
  • 00:16:49.220 --> 00:16:51.050
  • ULTIMATELY, I DON'T THINK --
  • 00:16:51.050 --> 00:16:52.080
  • Sheila: YOU JUST KIND OF
  • 00:16:52.080 --> 00:16:53.130
  • THREW A LOT OF THAT
  • 00:16:53.130 --> 00:16:54.150
  • IN THERE.
  • 00:16:54.150 --> 00:16:55.150
  • Sarah: IF YOU JUST KEEP
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:56.160
  • TALKING PEOPLE MOVE PAST IT.
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:57.220
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:16:59.160
  • Sheila: BUT THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:16:59.160 --> 00:17:00.190
  • I LOVE ABOUT YOUR STORY,
  • 00:17:00.190 --> 00:17:01.270
  • ABOUT YOUR HONESTY --
  • 00:17:01.270 --> 00:17:03.010
  • THAT'S PART OF YOUR STORY.
  • 00:17:03.010 --> 00:17:04.030
  • Sarah: YEAH, THAT'S ME.
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:05.050
  • THAT'S MY JOURNEY.
  • 00:17:05.050 --> 00:17:06.070
  • Sheila: BUT THAT'S NOT
  • 00:17:06.070 --> 00:17:07.090
  • WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:17:07.090 --> 00:17:08.110
  • THAT WAS NEVER WHO YOU WERE.
  • 00:17:08.110 --> 00:17:09.130
  • Sarah: I THINK THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:10.150
  • MY PARENTS KNEW ALL ALONG.
  • 00:17:10.150 --> 00:17:11.170
  • SO I THINK IF YOU'RE A PARENT
  • 00:17:11.170 --> 00:17:12.190
  • OUT THERE AND YOU'RE
  • 00:17:12.190 --> 00:17:13.210
  • EXPERIENCING SOME ISSUES
  • 00:17:13.210 --> 00:17:14.230
  • WITH YOUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:17:14.230 --> 00:17:15.250
  • YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER,
  • 00:17:15.250 --> 00:17:16.270
  • IF YOU PLACE GOOD SEED
  • 00:17:16.270 --> 00:17:17.290
  • IN THEM, REGARDLESS OF WHAT
  • 00:17:17.290 --> 00:17:19.010
  • DIRT IS THROWN ON TOP OF IT,
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:20.230
  • THAT THAT SEED
  • 00:17:20.230 --> 00:17:21.250
  • IS STILL IN THERE.
  • 00:17:21.250 --> 00:17:22.270
  • AND WITH THE PROPER AMOUNT
  • 00:17:22.270 --> 00:17:24.010
  • OF WATERING AND NURTURING
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:25.060
  • THAT EVERYTHING YOU PLACED
  • 00:17:25.060 --> 00:17:26.080
  • IN THEM YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:17:26.080 --> 00:17:27.100
  • TO SEE AGAIN.
  • 00:17:27.100 --> 00:17:28.120
  • I'M LITERALLY EVIDENCE.
  • 00:17:28.120 --> 00:17:29.140
  • IF YOU COULD HAVE NEVER TOLD
  • 00:17:29.140 --> 00:17:30.160
  • MY PARENTS I'D BE
  • 00:17:30.160 --> 00:17:31.180
  • ON LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:32.210
  • I'M FANCY!
  • 00:17:32.210 --> 00:17:34.050
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:34.050 --> 00:17:35.130
  • Sheila: YOU'RE SO FANCY!
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:40.050
  • IT'S INTERESTING, I THINK
  • 00:17:40.050 --> 00:17:41.120
  • THERE IS A CORRELATION
  • 00:17:41.120 --> 00:17:42.240
  • BETWEEN BROKENNESS,
  • 00:17:42.240 --> 00:17:44.270
  • YIELDED TO CHRIST,
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:46.070
  • AND A POWERFUL ANOINTING
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:48.100
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN HAVE SOMEBODY
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:49.120
  • WHO HAS HAD IT ALL TOGETHER
  • 00:17:49.120 --> 00:17:50.140
  • AND HONOR THE LORD
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.140
  • AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:17:51.140 --> 00:17:52.170
  • BUT WHEN YOU HAVE SOMEONE
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:53.190
  • WHO HAS BEEN TO VERY DARK
  • 00:17:53.190 --> 00:17:54.230
  • PLACES AND FOUND CHRIST
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:56.220
  • IN THE MIDST OF THAT,
  • 00:17:56.220 --> 00:17:58.050
  • THERE IS AN EXTRA ANOINTING
  • 00:17:58.050 --> 00:17:59.100
  • THAT'S ON YOUR LIFE THAT
  • 00:17:59.100 --> 00:18:00.200
  • IS BEAUTIFUL TO BEHOLD!
  • 00:18:00.200 --> 00:18:02.240
  • Sarah: THANK YOU.
  • 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:04.090
  • Sheila: SARAH MENTIONED THAT
  • 00:18:04.090 --> 00:18:05.100
  • SHE IS PART OF THE SERIES
  • 00:18:05.100 --> 00:18:06.200
  • WITH US WHICH WE'RE SO
  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:08.020
  • THRILLED ABOUT; IT'S CALLED
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:09.030
  • LIVING YOUR DESTINY .
  • 00:18:09.030 --> 00:18:10.070
  • EVEN IF YOU'RE LISTENING
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:11.100
  • TO WHAT SARAH SHARED,
  • 00:18:11.100 --> 00:18:12.290
  • YOU THINK, I'VE ALWAYS
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:14.060
  • THOUGHT I'VE BLOWN IT.
  • 00:18:14.060 --> 00:18:15.150
  • I'M GOING TO ALWAYS HAVE
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:16.160
  • TO SETTLE FOR SECOND BEST.
  • 00:18:16.160 --> 00:18:17.200
  • I'LL NEVER BE WHAT
  • 00:18:17.200 --> 00:18:18.210
  • I MIGHT HAVE BEEN.
  • 00:18:18.210 --> 00:18:19.240
  • I'VE DISCOVERED IF YOU STILL
  • 00:18:19.240 --> 00:18:20.230
  • HAVE A PULSE AND THERE IS NOT
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:22.080
  • A WHITE CHALK MARK AROUND
  • 00:18:22.080 --> 00:18:23.090
  • YOUR BODY, IT'S NOT
  • 00:18:23.090 --> 00:18:24.240
  • TOO LATE TO BE THE WOMAN
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:25.280
  • THAT GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:18:25.280 --> 00:18:27.110
  • WE'RE GOING TO OFFER
  • 00:18:27.110 --> 00:18:28.140
  • THIS TO YOU.
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:29.170
  • BUT FIRST, I WAS MADE AWARE
  • 00:18:29.170 --> 00:18:30.220
  • RECENTLY OF THE CURRENT
  • 00:18:30.220 --> 00:18:32.110
  • SITUATION IN ANGOLA
  • 00:18:32.110 --> 00:18:34.080
  • AND WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING BACK
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:35.130
  • PICTURES THAT I HAVEN'T SEEN
  • 00:18:36.170 --> 00:18:37.230
  • SINCE THE 1980'S
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:39.130
  • OF MOTHERS WHO ARE DESPERATE
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:42.090
  • TO BE ABLE TO SIMPLY PROVIDE
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:44.030
  • FOR THEIR CHILD ONE MEAL --
  • 00:18:44.030 --> 00:18:46.250
  • THAT'S ALL THEY'RE ASKING.
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:48.210
  • THEY ARE EXPERIENCING
  • 00:18:48.210 --> 00:18:49.250
  • TERRIBLE DROUGHT AND BECAUSE
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:51.020
  • OF THAT THERE IS NO CROPS
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:52.040
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT
  • 00:18:52.040 --> 00:18:53.070
  • THERE IS NO FOOD.
  • 00:18:53.070 --> 00:18:54.110
  • AND THESE POOR MOMS WHO ARE
  • 00:18:54.110 --> 00:18:55.270
  • JUST LIKE YOU AND ME --
  • 00:18:55.270 --> 00:18:57.110
  • THEY'RE JUST EXACTLY LIKE US
  • 00:18:57.110 --> 00:18:58.230
  • WHO WANT TO BE ABLE
  • 00:18:58.230 --> 00:19:00.050
  • TO PROVIDE FOR OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:01.190
  • BUT HERE'S THE AMAZING THING.
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:03.140
  • THIS IS THE THING
  • 00:19:03.140 --> 00:19:04.150
  • THAT GIVES ME HOPE.
  • 00:19:04.150 --> 00:19:05.180
  • WE CAN CHANGE THIS.
  • 00:19:05.180 --> 00:19:06.220
  • IT IS NOT LIKE THIS
  • 00:19:06.220 --> 00:19:07.260
  • ASTRONOMICAL PROJECT
  • 00:19:07.260 --> 00:19:09.020
  • THAT WE CAN'T POSSIBLY DO.
  • 00:19:09.020 --> 00:19:10.230
  • EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US,
  • 00:19:10.230 --> 00:19:13.160
  • I MAY AS WELL LET YOU KNOW.
  • 00:19:13.160 --> 00:19:14.290
  • MY SON WHO IS 19 AND
  • 00:19:14.290 --> 00:19:16.040
  • MY HUSBAND AND I ARE
  • 00:19:16.040 --> 00:19:17.100
  • ALL GETTING INVOLVED IN THIS
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:18.120
  • AND WE'RE ALL DOING
  • 00:19:18.120 --> 00:19:19.140
  • SOMETHING DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:20.260
  • SO IF YOU EVEN JUST HAVE $30,
  • 00:19:20.260 --> 00:19:23.240
  • YOU KNOW $30 WILL FEED
  • 00:19:23.240 --> 00:19:25.190
  • THREE CHILDREN
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:27.060
  • FOR THREE MONTHS?
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:28.130
  • LET'S JUST DECIDE
  • 00:19:28.130 --> 00:19:29.160
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:19:29.160 --> 00:19:30.210
  • -- NOT IN OUR TIME!
  • 00:19:30.210 --> 00:19:31.270
  • WE'RE GOING TO DRAW A LINE
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:32.260
  • IN THE SAND HERE AND SAY,
  • 00:19:32.260 --> 00:19:33.260
  • "NO MORE."
  • 00:19:33.260 --> 00:19:34.250
  • WE HAVE SO MUCH
  • 00:19:34.250 --> 00:19:36.050
  • AND THEY HAVE SO LITTLE.
  • 00:19:36.050 --> 00:19:37.140
  • SO IF EVERY ONE OF US THINKS,
  • 00:19:37.140 --> 00:19:38.250
  • OKAY, LORD, WHAT CAN I DO?
  • 00:19:38.250 --> 00:19:40.190
  • AND RESPONDS NOW BECAUSE
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:42.000
  • IT IS A CRISIS; IT'S NOT
  • 00:19:42.000 --> 00:19:43.200
  • SOMETHING THAT WE CAN PUT OFF
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:44.270
  • FOR A FEW MONTHS BECAUSE
  • 00:19:44.270 --> 00:19:46.090
  • THE PEOPLE THAT WE WORK WITH
  • 00:19:46.090 --> 00:19:47.280
  • IN THOSE AREAS,
  • 00:19:47.280 --> 00:19:49.010
  • THEY ARE PRAYING.
